Abstract

Over the course of this semester, I have dedicated time to this wonderful opportunity provided by my mentor along with the Student Engagement Fund to gain more experience with computers, the culture, and learn more about how we study physics. My experience consisted of getting the chance to take a small peak into the world of proton-proton collision study, which is much more involved than I originally expected it to be. It is fascinating how all of the scientists involved in this particular project work together and gather information necessary to explain different phenomena.
